Pondering Moon

Written for:  The Sunday Whirl, Wordle #450

Words:  battle, spread, moon, orange, curve, carve, sad, home, free, lives, lies, states

As an opulent orange sun
sets, a lemon-drop moon
spreads light across
the sky. Inside the curve,
face of moon looks sad,
battle weary. Though he
calls the sky home, he concerns
himself with lives we are living,
our state of mind, and wishes
he could free us all of illness,
and liars who fashion their
own truth.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Lovely poem and stunning imagery.


  2. I love the contrast between the “opulent orange sun” and the “lemon-drop moon.”
